Hare, J[ohn] I[nnes] Clark. The Law of Contracts. Boston: Little, Brown and Company, 1887. xxxiv, 679 pp. Reprinted 2003 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. ISBN 1-58477-311-1. Cloth. $125. * Hare's objective was to trace the doctrine of consideration and to show its influence on contracts in common law. Beginning with Roman law, where the doctrine of consideration was unknown, he proceeds to an examination of the practical importance of the law of sales. This treatise was taken from a course of lectures given by the author in the law school of the University of Pennsylvania, where he also served as a trustee. Hare [1816-1905] edited a number of selections and reports of cases and "...was one of the half-dozen greatest judges that Pennsylvania has produced. He ascended the bench just after equity was introduced, as a general system, into Pennsylvania, and his contribution to its establishment was of great importance." Dictionary of American Biography IV:262.
